When Dakota lost Mike he thought he was done for when it came to love. Heck, after losing a lifetime partner, he figures it's even affecting his ability to do his job as a veterinarian. Which is why he lets his friends convince him to see a psychologist. Ben is understanding, sympathetic, and a good listener. He's also the most attractive thing Dakota has seen in a long time. Before they know it, Dakota and Ben are moving from being in a doctor patient relationship to something a lot more interesting, and that presents a whole new set of problems. Can these two put aside the past and build a new life together, one that is uniquely theirs?
